The NASCAR Federated Auto Parts 400 Salute to First Responders is set to take place at 7:30 p.m. ET on Saturday, Sept. 11 at Richmond Raceway in Richmond, Virginia. The race will be televised live on NBCSN.
The Federated Auto Parts 400 Salute to First Responders will pay tribute and say thank you to all of the first responders throughout the country who risk their lives every day to serve and protect others. The race marks Federated’s 26th consecutive year of involvement in NASCAR.
“We knew it was appropriate to honor the memory of the victims of one of the worst days in our country’s history and recognize those who put their lives on the line that day,” said Phil Moore, senior vice president for Federated. “We will never forget the bravery of the police, firefighters and ordinary citizens who ran into those burning buildings 20 years ago. Since then, first responders continue to provide essential services to our country, especially during the challenging months of the pandemic. Honoring them all during the Federated 400 is a way for us to show our gratitude.”
